Unit Formation Run (UFR)
From: FM 7-22 October 2012
The UFR elicits intangible rewards gained from running with a group, such as esprit de corps, team building, and discipline. Unit formation runs are based on a time and/or distance that can be achieved with unit integrity and a display of unit cohesion. Unit formation runs are organized by squad, platoon, company, or battalion; not by ability. Keeping a large unit in step, with proper distance intervals and correct running form, offers intangible benefits that commander’s desire. Commanders should not use UFRs as the foundation of their PRT program. They should be performed no more than once per quarter due to the limited training effect offered for the entire unit. The UFR begins with a gradual increase in intensity for the first three minutes or ¼ mile, then continues at a prescribed target pace for a specified time, and concludes with a gradual decrease in intensity for the last three minutes or ¼ mile. The gradual increase and gradual decrease quarter miles will be conducted at a pace two minutes slower than the target pace. The unit commander is responsible for establishing a pace achievable by all Soldiers in the unit. Refer to Table 10-2 for endurance and mobility activities, prescriptions of intensity, duration, and volume within the toughening and sustaining phases. In addition, Chapter 5, Planning Considerations, provides the template for commanders and PRT leaders to implement endurance and mobility activities into their PRT programs.
